I'm working on it. The hair highlight is giving me fits. The graphic program I am working with has "studio light" capability, but does not work for an outdoor shot. The other issue is proportions of JR'* size. If he is 6 feet tall, when compared to the galfriend on the wall, and the girl to the right, (whose is further from the camera than JR) he should be waayy taller than the initial submissions. Problem is, his photo is cut off just below his waist. Cropping the bottom makes the pic look odd because the crop would go to high on galfriend. I've not made him as big a the proportion really should have him, and I have faked in some extension on his pants so I don't have to crop so low. Keep in mind I am a rank amateur at this with limited software. Also, the bottom portion may be partially obscured by a frame. His hand is in his pocket. I also extended the back of his left arm/elbow where it was cropped off in the original pic. Recommendations welcomed

That extension is hilarious! Jogging pants FTW. Do you have Photoshop with which you can use the Dodge tool and emboss a bit?

No, I don't have Photo Shop. I use an old program called Picture Publisher by Micrografx and Paint Shop Pro X. I've mailed a version to Willwren that has JR larger. I think he is to small here.

I've created an FTP account for us all so we can upload the full size entries. .PSD files, and so on. Whatever you have for this, upload it. Please upload moderately, but space and bandwidth are virtually unlimited.

Host: ftp://ftp.wiredotaku.com/
User: [email protected]
Pass: password2000

When you log in, create a directory (folder) with your BC account name. Put into that folder all your work for this project. This is so we can all see your great work. Please don't steal from others.

The link your directory is:
http://editorer.wiredotaku.com/bonnevilleclub/(your BC username)

You can provide links to your full sized work now! If you don't have an FTP program, or you don't know how to use one, you can use Internet Explorer. Firefox requires FireFTP, a plugin, but it doesn't allow the use of this address.

Copy and paste this into the Internet Explorer address bar:
ftp://bonnevilleclub+wiredotaku.com:...wiredotaku.com
There, you can create a "New Folder" just as you would in Windows, and then copy and paste your work from your computer'* folder into the folder there that you just created.

Anything that'* put into editorer.wiredotaku.com/bonnevilleclub/ is password protected. No one but the people informed here at the Lounge are able to see this. When you go to the web link, the information is still the same - [email protected] is the username, and the password is password2000

I don't have FTP software. I copied and pasted that link for IE, and see your directory, and can go into that, but there is no indication of where I can create a directory. The screen does not appear as it does in Explorer.

Sorry, I left to go to work. You can right-click and select New > Folder just as in Windows. I crated a Barry folder for you, so you can now copy and paste right into it from your computer. Hope that helps.

Now, let'* see those uploads!
